Reviews - What do customers think about The Sister Circle (The Sister Circle Series #1)?
You will want to join the circle! Dec 18, 2007
This is a fun and joyous read about a group of women living in a boarding house who discover what real sisterhood means. It is sweet, but not saccharine, compassionate and helpful, but most of all fun. A friend's husband read it and just could not stop laughing. Everyone I have loaned it to has loved it.
Sister Circle Jun 15, 2006
Okay, I bought this book because it was on sale and its premise reminded me of Penelope Stokes books. And when I started it, I was not sure I would finish it. But then I started to care about the characters and I do want to know what happens to them. I cared enough to buy the rest of the series lol although I plan to donate the set to my church library.
Pleasant, but often unbelievable-- Jan 1, 2006
THE SISTER CIRCLE is predictable, but still a pleasant read. The premise has a new widow, Evelyn Peerbaugh taking borders into her home.
Evelyn is amazed that within a short time after putting up her "Rooms 4 Rent" sign, women are coming to inquire about her boarding house. The women that she rents to are all very different and from the very beginning there are personality clashes among them. Evelyn is a good person, but finds it hard to be decisive and make house rules. Mae is an old hippy who lives in her own world. Tessa is sanctimonious and preachy. Audra tries so hard to make a good life for herself and her daughter that she is unbending. Finally, her daughter Summer is a sweet child doing her best to be the perfect daughter that her mother requires. Several other women are also brought into the mix. Two of the characters are professed Christians and many of the problems that the ladies face are solved with words from the Bible. I thought that the character descriptions of the women were well done. My biggest problem with the story was the interaction between the characters. They were often too blunt with one another and seemed to feel that they had the right to offer advice or ask questions that were much too personal. Those parts of the story were very unbelievable and rather annoying.
Great Sense of Friendship Dec 27, 2005
When I first discovered The Sister Circle series at my local library, I knew I would enjoy it. The book joins a group of women all fighting an inner war into a beautiful home and results in lifelong friendships and relationships being formed. We get more than just a glimpse into each character's life and are lucky enough to be able to learn about each personality, quirk, and hope these women have. At times humorous, sad, and even somewhat frustrating (especially with Tessa)the word of God is always prevelent and always inspiring. A great read!
Awesome series - I cannot put them down! Dec 7, 2005
I love this series - I've read 3 and have the 4th one on my nightstand. I should say I am devouring these books; I love each of the characters, their quirks, and their struggles to come to faith. I think it has made me question my own faith and hopeful made it stronger. Very well written....I am recommending this series to all of my friends.
